We are deeply sorry for your loss - the staff at Belen
Gabriel Lon Sciumbato, age 76, of Rio Communities, New Mexico, peacefully passed away at his home on June 1, 2022, with his devoted son by his side. Gabriel was born to Nicholas & Ann Sciumbato in La Junta, Colorado. He went on to attend Louisiana State University and was part of the Alumni Association. There he earned a PhD in agronomy and was plant pathology specialist for the Mississippi State University for 34 years. He was an avid gardener and craftsman. He was glad to share his bounty and projects with those he knew. Gabriel enjoyed his often raucous breakfast group where elaborate practical jokes were employed; which provided great laughter for months. He was the epitome of a great husband, father, grand-father, brother, and friend. Gabriel is preceded in death by his parents, and his wife, Patricia. He is survived by his son, Anthony, and his granddaughters, Peyton and Gabriella. Arrangements are being handled by the caring professionals at the Noblin Funeral Service Belen Chapel, 418 W.
